NATIONAL DOG DAY
National Dog Day is observed annually on August 26th.
This day encourages dog ownership of all breeds, mixed and pure, and embraces the opportunity for all dogs to live a happy, safe and abuse-free life. Dogs give us companionship; they keep us safe, and they aid those in need. It is a goal for many on National Dog Day to find homes for all dogs in need of a loving family. The goal of the National Dog Day Foundation is to rescue 10,000 dogs each year.
A dog is man’s best friend.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Use #NationalDogDay and post photos of your dog on social media. Take your dog for a walk. If you do not have a dog, ask to take your neighbor’s dog for a stroll or volunteer at a shelter.
National Dog Day was founded in 2004 by pet lifestyle expert and author Colleen Paige.
There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
